Art Journal Page Inspiration (+ Tutorial): Circles

Art Journal Inspiration: Circles

Today I have a new art journal page to share with you.

In it, I combined my love of patterned scrapbook paper and my love of watercolors using  fun circles.

Usually my art journal pages have more of a story that I’m trying to tell or a feeling I’m trying to get out.  Today I just wanted to play with colors and shapes.

Make sure you check back tomorrow to see how this art page inspired some new jewelry!  (The jewelry was so fun to make that I made a necklace, earrings and a ring!  And I even created an eWorkshop to show you how to make them.  You can see the jewelry tomorrow and the eWorkshop will come out next week!)

Here’s the final page:

I used some fun patterned paper and then matched the watercolors to the paper.

Here are the steps for creating this page:

Art Journal:  Circles

I used circle templates to make my circles.  These are from Simple Stories.

First I drew different sizes of circles on my page.

Then I cut out circles the same sizes from patterned scrapbook paper.

I used the circle templates to cut out the circles.

I didn’t glue them down yet.

I used watercolors to make circles around the circles I drew in different colors until the page was all filled up.

(Sorry I forgot to take a photo of the page with just the watercolors.  You can kind of see it in the next photo.)

Next I glued the patterned paper circles down.

That’s the final page!
